‘We’re All Gonna Die’, the highly anticipated new album from Dawes—out September 16 via their own HUB Records—is exclusively streaming now via NPR First Listen.
Of the album NPR Music says, “Through travelogues, story-songs and a literary quality that’s been honed to a cutting edge, Goldsmith and his band have crafted their most ambitious record to date.” The live stream follows The FADER’s premiere of the album’s title track, We’re All Gonna Die,” earlier this week.

Most recently, the official music video for the album’s lead single, ‘When The Tequila Runs Out,’ debuted. Directed by Kevin Hayes, the video was filmed with a slow motion camera capturing fun moments throughout a late night party as if it were slowly being recalled the next morning in a fuzzy hungover haze.
In support of the release, the band will perform two album release shows at Los Angeles’ Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on September 16 and at New York’s McKittrick Hotel on September 19. More dates to be announced soon.

We recently reviewed the album and said: “If Dawes were one of your favourite bands before, then this album is only going to cement that fact, if not, then they may very well become a new favourite after listening to their latest offering and which many will consider to be their best album to date.” You can read the review in full HERE
